Arthropod Collective: Off the Studio
The Collection Gallery will be showcasing the artworks of Arthropod Collective in a unique exhibition entitled “Off the Studio”. The exhibition will be inaugurated on Thursday, 2nd of March 2017 at 7:30 pm.
Group Arthropod is the concept that united Elias Zaarour & Roula Abdo from Lebanon, Mathieu Devavry & Jérôme Dupré la Tour from France and Christina Christofi & Vasilis Vasiliou from Cyprus - 6 artists from 3 different countries who came together to engage artistically with each other, by testing multiple procedures and techniques, by sharing ideas and emotions and to explore how this process will be experienced by the audience, in such a way that it is inspiring, accessible and meaningful.
“All artists are alike they all dream of making something more, that’s more social more collaborative and more real than art’’. Dan Graham
Art is something that expands thinking and once art is beyond the boundaries of a personal activity, audiences bring their own meanings and readings to it. The space and time it occupies bring further contextual meanings.
Artist and educator Roy Prentice, identifies the artwork as an ‘imaginative outcome’ which embodies ‘the knowledge required for its production’. Accessing this embodied knowledge present within a work is an element of the interpretive process as led by artists in the space.
The concept of the exhibition is also about the process of working together to create a common image, is about exchanging and collaborating. The artist as an observer of the other artist and its surroundings inside and outside of the studio, how ideas and images can be transmitted and recycled with new aesthetics.
The art exhibition will remain open to the public from the 2nd of March 2017 until 31st of March 2017.
